I'm a Wikipedia person so I can't really comment much on that petabox CPU choice. Maybe brewster will.

On the Wikipedia side, we've recently started storying three identical copies of our old versions of article text on our P4 Apache web servers/page builders, to use their hard drives for something useful. The Petabox might have some similar processing power need or might just not have been able to get what they wanted in the available alternative options. Wikipedia hasn'yet given much thought ot kW/hr and HVAC loads, perhaps mostlybecause they are just part of the package at our current hosting place.
